The Lyrics

This is for coffee-lovers, definitely!
I saw the Starbucks on the corner
Running fast across the street
A latte mixed with frozen water
Maybe better to heat
In the instant you try DoubleShots
In the second that the caffeine hits
Huge energies will charge your brain
And your feet the celing hit
And all I ever needed was that shot
My head reels when there's no coffeepot
When shots you try, you will get high
No other hits the spot
It's all I ever needed
Starbucks DoubleShot
There are leaders that start newbies
On the topic of caffeine
When they are young the caffeine grabs them
Powerful like I've never seen
For each bean in its time is brewed
Until its poured into a drink
And it knows its cause has not been wasted
It'll make a young girl's face turn pink
And all i ever needed was that shot
My head reels when there's no coffeepot
When shots you try, you will get high
No other hits the spot
It's all I ever needed
Starbucks DoubleShot
It's all I ever needed
Starbucks DoubleShot
Some of the pacing may seem a bit off... well, in the version of the lyrics that I have, there seem to be extra words, and I take them up on that. Extra words help, you know! Please leave comments if you would, and vote please!

You guys, Elton John is one of my absolute favorite music artists, so most of my parodies will be centered around his work... I'll try to get the times right next time though, lol

As a Utahn, I must ask: "Coffee"? What is this "coffee" of which you speak?

Fave line: "And your feet the ceiling hit"

(SOTM) You worked in the word 'newbie', a first that I've seen! Your face goes pink from 'coffeepot'...indeed... a true caffeine addict's anthem.4-4-5

(SOTM) For some reason, the line "Huge energies will charge your brain" makes me laugh out loud! Clever and funny, Ash!

This is a good parody, but I think it might be a little bit better if you had been able to make some changes in the chorus the second time through.

I liked it, Ash.

I couldn't find an untainted mp3 of the song, but a good read and really good pacing from what I was able to recover. Nice one, Ash.
